    Sharp New Grad Program Fall 2012/Winter 2013

    Just finished my application! I had work the past two days so I didn't get a chance until now. How do we know if they received our Supplemental app?

    ummm i was offered subsidized the first year, but now I see what you are saying and there is no subsidized loan for this year. Um.. I honestly don't know much about FAFSA and loans and all that, I would call the Financial Aid office if you have more questions: 626-815-4570

    malzi-- umm the cost... to be honest I haven't been keeping perfect track, but I think I pay about 8,000-9,000 per semester. you are not supposed to leave after the first portion. This was the old program. The ELM is intended for everyone to stay and continue with your master's. you may take a leave of absence for certain situations (like pregnancy). Also you could take a semester off to start a new-grad program (which I will probably do). I will be working and doing the Master's at the same time. (once I find a job). How hard? well..... its pretty tough... but not impossible. I would say I study a LOT, every weekend and most days. I am however able to have some fun :) I still have date nights with my husband and go to the gym and church.. so its not impossible. The graduates are having a harder time with jobs right now because of the job market in SD. however we had reps from SD hospitals tell us it is only improving and they are hopefully starting new grad programs this year. sooo we will see :) however I do know other people who have gotten jobs.. it just might not happen right away. let me know if you have any other questions!

    Lilfoot720- I really like the program. As I told kkandes there are pros and cons, and I believe the "grass is always greener" once you finally chose a program. I like the small class size, all my professors know me... etc. Then again, I am assertive and I make it this way. Like kkandes I was choosing btw a big name school and APU. APU was the BEST choice for my husband and I. However that being said, it may not be the best choice for everyone. So I would definitely do a pro/con list and really think about what is best for you. As for concerns, we just did not have a great Fundamentals or Med-Surg prof. Then again I have had amazing professors in other departments. I think this can happen anywhere. When i first got to the school, we had a different director, but now Janet Wessels is the director and she is amazing. She is turing the program around and I have only seen improvements since I have arrived. Issues are lack of organization and last minute changes. Those are very very frustrating but we have learned to roll with the punches. As for NCLEX, we use the Kaplan course to prepare and I heard the cohort who just finished had a 100% pass rate. So I think it looks good :) every time I take a Kaplan practice test (which we have too after each course) I get better and better scores. so I hope it will work out!! :) let me know if you have ANY other questions. happy to help :)

    APU EENAP Summer 2011

    hey everyone-- I just got accepted for Summer 2011 at the SD campus... this is a perfect fit for my husband and I... but I also got into Boston college, USD, and maybe Yale..... and its hard to put the "big name" school behind me.... but APU is just such a great fit..... thoughts??? what is APU's reputation?? does the "Big name" matter in the end for NP's?? I have heard great things about APU, and that they have a great reputation, i am just wondering what you all have heard. Thanks!!!

    Yale GEPN Applicants 2011

    last year i was waitlisted, i flew out there and did the whole orientation. I have gotten another interview this year... does anyone know if it makes a big difference being there in person?? If it does I am willing to pay the money to go again, otherwise i am from the Bay Area (oakland) and it is expensive to go out there again. thoughts??

    2011 UCSF MEPN Applicants

    Hey everyone-- Did anyone apply before? Because they said I do not have to send in new transcripts and rec letters (except for one new one) and I do not know then how to submit that part of the application with rec letters. It says it is not complete. How do I confirm UCSF has my old letters and transcripts? Thank you!! the email seems to be down and no one is answering the phone
